A frequent speaker on communication and management, he's been quoted in Business Week, The Wall Street Journal and other national publications.
“Meeting the right people at a networking event is sometimes like finding a needle in a haystack", explains Mr. Gibson, "MeetingWave allows for targeting, control, flexibility, privacy and it's easy."
Marjorie Churgin has been name Director of Business Development and Sales. Ms. Churgin has more than 10 years experience in Business Development and financial sales on Wall Street. Her clients have included large domestic banks, Japanese institutions, insurance companies, REITs, associations , and investment managers. Marjorie is a member of the Board of the Columbia Business School Alumni Club, and a former Board member of the Financial Women's Association.

“Networking with other professionals--both face-to-face and online--has been integral to my success”, explains Ms. Churgin, “and has ignited my interest in working with MeetingWave to help others achieve the same through networking with new contacts.”
MeetingWave recently launched private label versions of its platform for alumni groups, associations, and large corporations, and will soon launch private labels for hotels, resorts, trade shows and conferences.
MeetingWave will also soon launch the first location-based mobile applications focused on business networking incorporating the recently announced email domain verification feature on mobile user profiles.
MeetingWave’s core mission has been to help its members meet new people for business or social purposes, while providing them with control, privacy and flexibility in setting up these meetings. MeetingWave’s users can propose networking meetings that are open to anyone -- yet they can still maintain control over who can ultimately attend and whether the meeting occurs, while also keeping their identity private until they are ready to disclose to the other members.
